36 Testimonials

Parachute Coffee

Pixel Union was a great partner, and we would highly recommend them. Since the launch of the project, we've seen 189% lift in revenue and 300% growth in subscribers.

Viberg Boot

It’s difficult to deliver a boutique fashion ecommerce experience that embodies a good brand experience but also converts. Pixel Union worked to deliver just that; a beautiful site that keeps Viberg's products front and centre, but elegantly weaves our rich brand narrative into the user experience. We couldn’t be happier.

Out of Print

Since relaunching with Pixel Union, we’ve seen a double digit lift in time on site, page views per visit but most importantly, conversion rate. This has allowed us to invest in driving traffic to our site with much more confidence.


We had an amazing experience working with the Pixel Union team. They were responsive, efficient, and able to quickly turn our vision for our eCommerce site into a reality. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Pixel Union to bring our site to the next level!

Use Pixel Union only if you want hassle free highly professional work and a website that increases your conversions.


Pixel Union’s work on our new online store truly exceeded our expectations. Their team is efficient, experienced, and a pleasure to work with in terms of communication and collaboration. The project was managed on time, and we received a world-class ecommerce website that has already led to increased sales and conversions.


Pixel Union were fantastic! They provided timely, thorough and responsive support. The end product looks great. They also really helped me troubleshoot - I couldn't do exactly what I wanted to do with the existing themes / apps, and they took a lot of initiative to help me figure out how best to achieve my objective within the budget I had.

Thank you Angela and team!

Excellent service and communication from Pixel Union, I can't recommend them highly enough, they implemented my design tweeks quickly and professionally, all changes were comunicated and explained to me quickly and efficiently. I hope to use them again in the future to expand and evolve my business. These guys are the real deal and just about the best in the business.

Airsoft Innovations Inc.

We have nothing but excellent things to say about Pixel Union's work. They helped us build a better version on top of their 'startup' theme which came just in time for a product launch.

Pixel Unions work helped gain us record number of direct sales and garnered the best feedback from users on our site design and back-end features.

I would highly recommend using Pixel Union as a developer for any Shopify customer looking to enhance their current website. I would also highly recommend their stock themes. They provide an excellent starting point.

From their speedy email responses, excellent clear communication, and very reasonable budgets they were stellar in providing their services to us.

The Colossal Shop

Pixel Union are awesome folks to work with! They built some great custom functionality for us and made a whole bunch of neat visual tweaks. Their communication was clear and timely and we were always surprised by how quickly they implemented changes. We're pretty picky, but the Pixel Union team never seemed annoyed and were super professional throughout. When one of the tweaks we were hoping for wasn't possible, they kindly explained why and then offered a great alternative solution for us. When a change to the theme had unintended effects on the mobile site, they were quick to fix it.

Pixel Union has given us a huge assist as we continue to build our business. Awesome experience.

Thursday Boot Company

I would recommend Pixel Union. Before working with them we were managing all website changes internally. Pixel Union helped us efficiently bring our website to the next level. Their work was typically high quality and consistent. In our experience, customer service was stellar. They always seemed to genuinely care about the project and were willing to put in the extra effort to help us reach our goals. Angela has been a particular pleasure to work with. We plan to continue using Pixel Union as we make iterative improvements to thursdayboots.com.

Comfortable Club

They've done an absolutely splendid job customizing my theme. With today's e-commerce landscape, making your site look beautiful and function with ease is essential, and they've allowed me to display my products in ways that only the big guys can. A few features they pulled off:

-Custom Thumbs for Variants on the product page
-Additional Call to Actions
-Special page templates
-Spacing customizations
-New fonts

All of the customizations are also customizable themselves, which means that they've built new options into the theme settings page. PERFECT!

I highly recommend their themes, and if you require customizations, who better to make them than the creators themselves?


Tumbly Life Fitness

I had the pleasure of working with Angela with Pixel Union. It was a great experience. She was detailed, knowledgable and readily available. I would use them again!

Our Heiday

I worked with Nadia Grutter and her team of developers to create a custom blog for our website. They were absolutely wonderful to work with from start to finish and we are super thrilled with how the blog turned out. We gave them a description of exactly what we were looking for and they worked with us closely throughout the entire process, checking in with regular updates and responding to any/all tweaks we wanted to make. The blog looks exactly like we envisioned - they were able to create parts of the blog that we weren't even sure we could accomplish! Nadia was so great to work with - she's so pleasant and extremely helpful, and I know she did everything she could to make sure we were happy with the blog :)

Thank you so much, Nadia and team!

Paladin Shaving

Working with Pixel Union was an absolute pleasure. I worked with their team to put together a tremendous and not so simple system together. It wasn't an easy task at hand but they knocked it out of the park with flying colors. They were easy to communicate with from the beginning to the end and they stood by their work until it was just the way we envisioned. They were able to understand and assess my unique situation and execute like the professionals they are. I look forward to working with Pixel Union in the future and would highly recommend them to anybody looking for a beautiful, well oiled website.

Aroha Silhouettes

Jess and Nadia at Pixel Union created a fantastic new website for my brand Aroha Silhouettes! The amount of time it took to complete the new site and have it up and running exceeded my expectations and I was really happy with their constant communication throughout the process.

The look and feel of the new shop matches flawlessly with the old Magento shop and the back end functions beautifully. I'm very satisfied with their work and I am looking forward to hire them again in the future. Migrating from Magento to Shopify was a big decision and I'm really glad I went ahead with it!


We are very happy with our new website, and working with Pixel Union was very easy and enjoyable.

Midnight Rider

Pixel Union was the original developer for the theme I used to I reached out to them for modifications. They made a few, free of charge when I first installed the theme, and I reached out to them for a larger job in March. They were quick to make all the changes, all turnarounds were within 10 days, and I'm very happy with the look of my custom Pixel Union site!


I own an online jewellery shop and purchased the theme Atlantic by Pixel Union. I was looking to customize my site a little more to appeal to my customers. I wanted to give my customers the ability to scroll offer the merchandise and see a photo of what that product looks like when wearing it without having to click on each item and see a photo.
I contacted Pixel Union and they were great at understanding my needs and being able to implement this feature promptly.

I'm very satisfied with their timely work and suggestions to my site.


Great experience. There was a minor issue after an upgrade to my theme - I let them know and it was corrected immediately.


Fantastic and Fast.
Payment process = straight forward.
Code was easy to identify in my theme

Elete Water Canada

Brant, Calvin and Jess were awesome to work with. They took an awful site and made it beautiful and highly functional in no time flat. I can’t believe we waited so long to get this done. Thanks guys, worth every $.
